Building a Bikeable Future was our theme for 2023.

Like the cue sheets and Dan Henrys that guide us forward on Cascade rides, these words guided our work and pointed us toward a destination.

That destination is a future where more people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds can safely and skillfully ride bicycles for transportation, recreation, health, happiness, sustainability, equity, and prosperity.

Thanks to our members, volunteers, sponsors, donors and ride participants, we made great progress this year toward our goal of building a more bikeable Washington state.

Please join us in celebrating the moments that made us proud in 2023.

Supporting Food Banks and Fighting Food Insecurity

Our Pedaling Relief Project made headlines and won national exposure this year thanks to its milestone achievement of transporting more than 1.2 million pounds of food and essential goods by bike.

Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell and the University of Washington’s prestigious Urban Freight Lab helped us celebrate the Pedaling Relief Project during a news conference at the University District Food Bank in October.
